This needs more. Mel's Shot works well in this build. Consensus? --The preceding srsly srs comment was added by Itokaru 01:41, 22 November 2008 (EST)

Needling Shot ftw. --Rancoeur Subtile 19:43, 22 November 2008 (EST)

Needling Shot will drain you quick and WoH Monks usually spoil it's spammability. I'd say Keen Arrow if you want more raw damages vs. bleeding because most of your teammates will already have bleeding-inducing attacks. Just my thought. --Ulterion 19:46, 22 November 2008 (EST)
Needling Shot won't drain you quick, it's just a terrible skill. --The preceding srsly srs comment was added by Itokaru 20:32, 22 November 2008 (EST)
The purpose of this build isn't it about high damage in riffle? Look like Needling is a fast, very powerfull and low cost skill who do well the job. This build have yet a problem of e-management, Needling can bypass it in an reasonable way, an can kill VERY fast a -50% health opponent.About WoH, it can spoil every arrows skill, not only Needle, no?^^' ... oh yeah, and I just wanted to say that when I play this build, ennemy monks are not so much a problem ... the problem is poor defense if no healer in the team (for RA), and the E management. But this build really rocks, and deserve his reputation.--Rancoeur Subtile 10:31, 23 November 2008 (EST)
Yes, the purpose of this build is high damage. 44 damage (29 damage from Needling, +10 from Read the Wind and +5 from vamp) is not high. Also, there are zero energy problems with this build. I spam BA-Hunters-Savage on recharge and don't run into energy problems. --The preceding srsly srs comment was added by Itokaru 15:58, 23 November 2008 (EST)
Needle make high damage by ultra spam.--Rancoeur Subtile 17:49, 23 November 2008 (EST)
It's still low, conditional damage that costs energy. Needling Shot is bad. --The preceding srsly srs comment was added by Itokaru 17:47, 5 December 2008 (EST)

Since we already have flail as IAS, do we really need Lighting Reflexes? Maybe drop it out for Troll Unguent or Natural Stride? Colonel Hawk 22:48, 25 November 2008 (EST)

That'd require you to spec into wild survival, lightning is there as anti-spike, not IAS. In GVG, with lightning you should NOT die to any physical spike.--GoldenGoldenstarStar 22:50, 25 November 2008 (EST)

Flail is the optional in this build, seen it replaced with mtouch many times. LR is the shizzle. Tritan 00:38, 12 December 2008 (EST)

Major Rune

Is a major marks really necessary in this build? I know it will add damage, but you don't see major/sup runes in PvP often. -- 08:41, 16 December 2008 (EST)

14 Marks is another second on burning, this is a DPS Ranger, the extra 14 Dmg via degen per burning ( along with increased DPS overall) is worth - 35 HP. Hikari 20:49, 18 December 2008 (EST)

You're probably not going to get glads if you don't have a healer, regardless of what build you run. Toraen (Talk/Contrib) 03:37, 10 January 2009 (EST)


If you ran this vs say a Incendiary Arrow ranger in JQ, how could you truly consider both to be great? Incendiary Arrows is a) Capable of capping shrines faster, b) A LOT more likely to survive because of a self heal, c) able to remove conditions from itself without sacrificing pin down. Clearly Incendiary Arrows is a GREAT build for CM where as this build is not. It's good, but a single ele with Blinding Flash will smack you into the ground. A little bit of pressure will smack you into the ground.

Just because it is great in organised PvP doesn't mean it is great everywhere else. Not all arenas have a monk, not all arenas have the same objectives. PvX wiki needs to have separate builds section for different arenas instead of lumping a great tag on something that works in GvG and HA but is terribad in un-organised PvP or arenas with different objectives. Get someone to run this and then run IA in JQ and see which one was better. I'm not saying the build is bad, I'm saying the rating doesn't reflect the arena you play in, maybe it's time to rate builds for individual arenas because there is a clear difference in performance for each arena. 22:02, 12 January 2009 (EST)

Also apparently sexy for making sure you can renew RtW and get res sig off without being shot by other turret whores. - Panic sig5 11:58, 13 January 2009 (EST)

as well as have a 75% chance to get res sig off, and if they are raping your rtw you can get that off too. -- Gringo TALK 17:00, 13 January 2009(EST) whups just noticed panic said that. -- Gringo TALK 17:00, 13 January 2009(EST)

In all fairness I had to ask why you would take it, too. As Rawr says, if you run it you do end up with it charged often enough to be useful and the times you would use it (preps, rez, possibly even defensively), you won't necessarily be attacking anyway so the IAS loss isn't too bad. - Panic sig5 12:07, 13 January 2009 (EST)
ive also seen it on a ton of magebanes, helpful for getting apply up. -- Gringo TALK 17:09, 13 January 2009(EST)
Last time I used magebane in TA it was the standard R/Mo bar and I used nat stride but yeah same theory. - Panic sig5 14:36, 13 January 2009 (EST)
